Studs Says, ‘Palin … She's Joe McCarthy in Drag!'

Never one to mince words, Studs Terkel shares his thoughts

Chicagoan Studs Terkel, at 96, is hoping to see America's first black president sworn into office. 

Born in 1912, Terkel is quoted as saying, "As the Titanic went down, I came up."

Writer Edward Lifson points out that Terkel has done far more than most to advance civil rights in this country.  With books and multiple oral histories, and a Pulizer Prize to his name, Terkel has been a recognized voice in Chicago for decades.

Lipson recently spoke to Terkel about the upcoming election.

"I asked Studs," Lifson writes in a recent article, "if he were to interview Obama, what would he ask him?"
